What is a Breast Reduction?
Breast reduction formally referred to as reduction mammaplasty, reshapes the breasts to make them smaller and firmer. The reduction removes excess fat, tissue, and skin to help make the breasts lighter. Many women consider this type of surgery because they experience physical pain due to their large breasts, their breasts are disproportionate to their body, and they cannot participate in all physical activities due to large breasts.
How is Breast Reduction Done?
The breast reduction techniques can vary depending on the amount of change needed. It often is done in combination with liposuction and breast lift. The most common method uses an incision around the areola. The incision will continue down to the natural curve under the breast. Dr. Iacobucci will remove excess glandular tissue, skin, and fat. After this, he will reposition the nipple and areola to a higher position. During your consultation appointment, Dr. Iacobucci will go over all of your breast reduction options with you.
